The school year is winding down for us this week, the countdown is on! I am so ready for summer break to get started and slooooow down. I am sure that I’m not alone in feeling this way! The month of May kind of kicked me in the butt so it will be nice to not feel like we have somewhere to be or go or do for a while. It’s possible that I may start cooking proper dinners again too. 😉

Oh hey there summer…

New Smyrna Beach, FL

You all know I’m a salad girl and making quick vinaigrettes with whatever I have on hand is definitely my thing. I tend to stick with basic ingredients and feel like I hit the lottery when I have an practically empty jar of mustard or preserves on hand. Those jars and it’s remnants make the best dressings, if you haven’t tried it you must.

This Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette is a very simple dressing I make all the time, since it’s ingredients are ones I always have. This dressing is wonderful drizzled over a flank steak salad or even grilled chicken as a way to jazz it up a bit.

    There’s no reason to buy expensive vinaigrettes when you can make your own at home and it’s so much fresher. Love this basic balsamic – it’s perfect for almost any salad and as a marinade too.

      So true, not worth the money and they just don’t taste as fresh. This makes a GREAT marinade!

    Yummy! I love salads and dressings too. 
    How far away from your home is that dreamy beach?
    I have mixed feelings about summer. Nice not to have a schedule but kids at home pretty quickly become worse than any schedule.:) If they only listened all the time.:) Enjoy your time off, mama.

      That beach is about 40 minutes from me…but I was spoiled and grew up 10 minutes from the beach so that feels too far!! But I know I’m lucky to have it. I can’t live without it 🙂

      I totally get what you are saying about summer! I always start out very energized and ready to entertain, but it gets old. Will be interesting to see in a few weeks 😉 Happy almost summer to you too!

    You know I love your salads and dressings and this one is perfection. I like to make my own vinaigrette too and balsamic is my absolute favorite. Your frugal mustard jar tip is awesome – still to this day when I use a jarred marinara, I always add a bit of water and shake to get that last bit our of the jar. I think we may have grown up with similar influences in the kitchen 🙂

      oooh, I do the same with marinara, every time!! And my canned tomatoes 🙂
